We've got a solid number of fowards but hardly an "embarassment of riches".

Miller - should be our best and most consistent forward all season long
Mattocks - will have his ups and downs but should be solid again despite only being a second year pro
Camilo - skilled player (who seems to have really picked up his work rate). He was a starter on the 2011 team, 2nd choice on the 2012 team and has fallen further still as our team has gotten better.

Salgado - It would be unreasonable to expect him to make the jump like Mattocks did but he has shown he's got MLS quality now.
Hienemann - Good target with a pretty good touch. Not going to be a significant piece on any good MLS team. Will be a reserve player
Hertzog - Good hard worker up front who's got some pedigree but at this point is not going to be a significant piece on any good MLS team.
Clarke - some people are REALLY high on this kid and he does show a lot of really impressive tools. Not ready for MLS time other than the odd minutes he can sneak in.
